We will talk about several problems in the philosophy of language, using Donald Davidson’s work on actions as an example. We present a category-theoretic semantics for reasoning about action, and explain where it gets us philosophically. We finish with some speculative claims about Heidegger.

This talk is part of the Logic and Semantics Seminar (Computer Laboratory) series.
